Song of the Year

Each year Cross International gives a special award to the writer or music artist who has best conveyed the mission of our ministry in a current song. Our goal is to inspire more Christian artists to share this vital Gospel message to their listeners worldwide. Previous winners have been “Follow You” by Leeland, “Keep Changing the World” by Mike’s Chair, and “I refuse” by Josh Wilson.



This year, Harmony of Hearts is proud to announce Fireflight as the winner of the 2012 Song of the Year award! Click here to hear the song!

It was a close race this year, but Fireflight’s “Proof of Our Love” narrowly edged out For King and Country’s “The Proof of Your Love” and Sidewalk Prophets’ “I Want to Live Like That.”

The lyrics in this song resound strongly with Jesus’ call to get out into the world and help the poor. The verses and chorus go:

“So far away from the lives we lead each day.
Love as voices hunger, and there’s no shelter from danger.
All this love we talk about, talking won’t put food into their mouths.

Don’t look away, don’t look away
Why don’t we do something?
Why don’t we do something?
(If we say that we love them?)
Don’t turn away, don’t turn away
Let’s open up our eyes,
bring our faith to life.
(This is proof of our love.)
This is proof of our love.

Harder to see than the problems we perceive.
We’re sickness, fast on our apathy and there’s no way to the suffering.
All this hope we talk about, wishing won’t help those who go without.”

Congratulations to Fireflight!

Formed in Eustis Florida in 1999, Fireflight has been on countless tours, performed at Winter Jam 2012, and this year dropped their fourth full length album titled Now. The band is made up of lead vocalist Dawn Michele, guitarist Justin Cox, bass guitarist Wendy Drennen, guitarist Glenn Drennen, and drummer Adam McMillion.
